Message Subject Hell Hath No Fury Like A Private Prison. Collusion of State and Corporations to Put You in Prison?
Poster Handle ANHEDONIC

I write to prisoners as a ministry that God put on my heart. They tell me a lot, and I have also visited prisoners in the big prisons several times.
It is not a place anyone ever wants to be. It is inhumane and does nothing to turn them into better people, but rather, they come out with a twisted sense of reality and very unable to deal with normal people or society. Prison life turns even the tiniest things into something huge for them, because they have so very little. Even the smallest slight can get you stabbed or badly beaten, and the racism is very much a necessity of survival. You don't even dare befriend someone of the opposite race or take their side in any way, or you are considered a traitor. If a big fight breaks out, and you choose not to fight with your "race" against the others, then you will pay for it later from your side, big time. If you have any good thing in you, you better hide it well or get rid of it in there, or you may not make it. Imagine coming out on the streets with that kind of animalistic programming. Not to mention the ones who get raped or pawned out for use by whomever. And it still amazes me how they can get their drugs, amazing, and phones, etc. There's always someone willing to earn that black market $ in there.

That is awesome that you do that and this subject matter is one that very much interests me. Many individuals go to prison and learn to become smarter and more effective criminals. They sit around all day with nothing to talk about except what they know - the games they play on the street. They don't learn life skills, they don't learn anger management, or how to respect one another. Prison is very much a jungle where one comes out worse off than before one went in. I am not surprised to learn of the high recidivism rates for various offenders. For many, prison life feels more 'normal' than outside life where they lack the interpersonal skills and morals to survive among the populace. Much easier to act like an animal in the jungle I guess.

And about your last point you made regarding contraband. Isn't that an amazing testament to how foolish our approach to the 'war on drugs' is? We cannot even prevent contraband from infiltrating our most secure institutions in our country, yet we think we can stop it from entering our wide open borders and prevent people from accessing it in their communities? What a horrible joke!

I really like that you communicate with prisoners and recognize that they are still human beings inside no matter how unrecognizable on the exterior. Many would rather throw away the key and forget that they even exist. Harder to sympathize with some depending on their crimes but there are many people in prison who do not belong to be there and many who would stand to greatly benefit from alternative means of treatment rather than being locked down 23 hours a day and provided with no services to better themselves as human beings.
